i didnt sleep at all last night... not one bit...

i thought it was the cold and how i was unable to get my body
at a temperature that would allow me to fall asleep...

but no amount of blankets worked...

i tossed and turned all night...

melodies, music, etc filled my head..

i thought of some really cool lyrics to some of my songs...
but why at such the wrong time?
i remember getting pissed at myself!!!

shit its like i thought about everything last night...
people, places, the past, the future.... for about an hour
i really thought i was gonna figure out the secret of the world...

how it came to be before it came to be and how... and from where?

it was very quiet at 3am...

even quieter at 4am...
the digital alarm clock makes no sense when its upside down, and i
preferred reading the time that way.... it almost looked like heiroglyphics...
i found it funny how the clock makes sense rightside up.. and the same clock
makes no sense upside down...

now i want to view everything oppositely...
for sheer entertainment....

i knew i didnt have to work today...
i had no real reason to sleep...

so i experimented...
i even tried to see ghosts as if i would be the one to see them...
then i realized that i just have a really good imagination.

if i believe i am seeing something enough, then i start to see it.

4 am became 5am.

i looked outside of the window.... just had an urge...
right at that moment a black cat crossed from left to right...

then moments later a jogger in a white hoodie passed from right to left...
they were the only movement outside.

i thought about trees... how do they see the world?

i wish i could see things differently... so different its not human.
i thought about how i am trapped in myself. limited to this world... to this body...
i tossed and turned some more.

i thought about flying. about how i have hread stories about out of body experiences...
i tried to imagine myself leaving my physical body at rest...

i remember flying in my dream... i remember being in a different city but near family members. i came home really really late.... and excited... i couldnt keep myself grounded... it was very similar to how you cant keep yourself at the bottum of a swimming pool for long before you naturally float up... it was the same thing only i was on the ground.... i told them i could fly... i said "watch this," i said, "watch me!" in one great leap i was so high... it was so effortless... it made me feel alive... i felt like i had been able to do that before... i remember being so happy.... and so powerful, totally in control of myself.... like magic.

i wonder when all that happened?
i dont remember being asleep, i just remember thinking i might be asleep.

i sleep well on 2 occasions:
the first being on nights that i know i dont
have to do anything the next day- so i stay up even later
and sleep later, but peacefully so.
and the second being when i am so drunk
the only thing i feel like doing is sleeping.

used to take sleeping pills years ago- but then i
would sleep too much (through the afternoon) and
still wake up feeling tired, sometimes more tired,
and i didnt like that feeling... so i stopped and
havent touched them since.

i do believe that if i wasnt so self absorbed, i might go to bed earlier.
but i stay up late at night doing personal things that bring me pleasure.
my own things are the best things sometimes... the moods i create for
myself (knowing how to) i never want to end... and i only get those moods
when im by myself and away from the rest of the world... i push the time...
wanting it to never end... the only thing stopping me is obligation-- the
obligation that tomorrow brings requiring me to be rested... half-rested and
barely operating well... sometimes people question...

i say i stay up late.

Is It Monday?
I really am a night owl, that's what my body clock its telling me. My mother tells the story of trying to parent an infant who would be awake and playing all night and sleeping all day. In her immortal words, "I broke you." But what's in the blood rises to the top and here I am awake and posting.

But the real world operates during the day. I'm living somewhere in between and I'm not even sure what day it is sometimes.

Damn. I'm going to lose my tenuous grip on sanity before Christmas. I Just need to hold things together a little while longer.

Current Mood: uncomfortable

haven't posted here in a while. haven't been unable to sleep in a while. and yet here it is, almost 5am, and I'm wide fucking awake. Can't sleep. Not even tired. And yet tomorrow I'm supposed to get up at 0600 for a 14 hour day on campus...

I wish I could sleep.

the end
what am i doing up?
its 3:39 am
oh wait, now its 3:40am.
i was just reading, still...
some people think the 2nd coming will happen on this date:
another reason added to the list of why i cant sleep.
how impt. is it to be saved? whats this fear?
i am filled with question, and just being baptised is salvation?
no... no.. no...
its not, theres no way to cleanse your soul, you are who you are.

i cant sleep because i am overwhelmed by the thought i might miss a chance, in whatever form it may come in. Like waiting, with your eyes peeled. Like having hope that somewhere in this pathetic world there is someone else who is like you. Someone else who is up, plague-ridden with sleeplessness searching.

i feel really bad for this, as i am breaking chag and shabbos - but i have a cheter - anyway, tonight i've tried reading for hours at a time, listening to soothing music, trying self-hypnosis (yes, i know how to do that) and none of these helped. I don't wanna chat, cause that would lead me to more sleepless hours. what do y'all do?

why I'm tired
grabbed from yesterday's slashdot, the link to: http://slate.msn.com/id/2103823/

best excerpt is this email from a guy on board a navy ship at sea, too good to be fake

Tired of being in the navy and on a fucking ship in the middle of the god damn ocean with 400 of my not so closest friends who dont bathe as regular as normal folk should. Tired of my ugly little toe. Tired of wonderring why my bellybutton smells like cheese. Tired of masturbating into a pack of bologna. Tired of wondering what my man chowder tastes like and if I did taste it, would anyone think differently of me? Tired of you.

thought this would be appropriate here :) back to not sleeping now...

soooooo im disconnected in my room until its up to my parent's standards in cleanliness. I'm using a machine \i'm not supposed to be on right now. This is the second time this week that \i've given up on sleeping at 4:30 in the morning. I had a meeting with the neurologist on thursday about my seizures; i slept through it. I'm tired.

i woke up at 7 yesterday morning and havent slept since. my father is pissed and is taking out my computer tonight. he's pissed because "that's not normal". Weeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllll, that's why I had the sleep studies done, cause my circadian rhythm is all out of whack, genius. He's upset that while I was awake this whole time, I didnt clean my room. Hmmmmm, rooom, or sleep at 5 AM? tough choice. he already takes my phones and disconects me from the internet. and I'm forbidden to leave the house at night so I cant take a walk. And he just told me I can't take any more showers cause the water drips in the basement. I think I'll skip work today and try and sleep.

newbie. I'm an orthodox Jew, been breaking my own rules and ethics in order to try and rest/sleep. Tonight is the sabath, and so far, I have broken a number of ordinances, including typing this right now. I've been a poor sleeper since infancy, and my condition deteriorated after an episode of sexual abuse by my best friend at age 16. I'm 20 now, diagnosed with bipolar type II, after two suicide attempts and countless cuts on my arm. I once went 3 days without sleeping or a moment of restfulness, and performed hard labor during that period as well (I still havent gotten paid for it, and that was back in February. One thing I can suggest is take a steamy shower for about 20 minutes or however long you like. This is your safe place. Clear your mind, and if a thought enters your head, verbally express it. There's nothing wrong with talking to yourself, and the water is running anyway so nobody can hear you if you're worried about that. Pace around the tub or stall, just letting yourself relex until you start to yawn more often than not. This probably wont get you to sleep, but it gives me a half-hour to two hours of feeling rested, laying in bed afterwards. out.
